Dairy Arts Center


Our Visual Arts Program is accessible to everyone through our 27 annual art exhibitions and receptions that are free to the public. These exhibitions present local, national and international artists, including monthly youth and adult workshops based on current exhibitions. We curate four gallery spaces with juried, rotating exhibitions in our McMahon Gallery, the Polly Addison Gallery, the MacMillan Family Lobby and the Hand-Rudy Gallery. The Visual Arts Program is also responsible for planning and facilitating a variety of associated events, including free receptions for each exhibition, visual art workshops in a variety of mediums for adults, teens, and children in the community who are interested in the unique educational benefits the visual arts offer, as well as regular free visual arts lectures for the Boulder community at large. The galleries are free and open to the public Monday-Sunday, from 2pm-6pm.
